We are excited to share the news that Dr. Guru Mohanty and his esteemed cardiac electrophysiology team at Chippenham Hospital have achieved a significant milestone by performing the first cardiac ablation procedure in Virginia utilizing the ground-breaking FARAPULSE™ System. This innovative device, recently approved for atrial fibrillation treatment in the U.S., has been heralded for its safety and effectiveness in cardiac procedures worldwide.

The prevalence of atrial fibrillation, a common heart rhythm disorder, is on the rise, leading to significant morbidity amongst affected individuals. The introduction of Pulsed Field Ablation through the FARAPULSE™ System marks a turning point in how we approach the management of this condition at Virginia Arrhythmia Consultants. By leveraging non-thermal catheter ablation techniques, our expert electrophysiologists can now extend cutting-edge treatment to a wider range of patients, while simultaneously reducing the risk of complications associated with traditional methods and enhancing overall patient safety.

The successful completion of the inaugural cardiac ablation procedure using the FARAPULSE™ System is a testament to our unwavering commitment to providing the highest standard of care to our patients. As we continue to lead the way in innovative cardiac interventions, we look forward to transforming the lives of individuals battling atrial fibrillation and other heart rhythm disorders across Virginia and beyond.
